Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to trim a tree?

The national price range for tree trimming ranges anywhere from $75-$1,000. Tree trimming is often done by a professional arborist who is trained to safely trim and prune trees for both the health of the tree and the safety of the residents and their property. Trying to do your own tree trimming is not advisable unless you have the proper know-how. Tree trimming companies may charge an hourly rate for their services. The hourly rate may be higher or lower for different trees to reflect the relative safety measures, skill, equipment or people power needed to handle the job. For this reason, most tree services provide free estimates.

One example of an hourly rate for professional tree trimming services is $150 per hour. Costs may be under $100 or could be higher than $300 per hour, depending on variables such as proximity to buildings, health of the tree, height and diameter of the tree, and type of tree trimming desired. Geography and regional cost of living and regional costs to do business will also play a role in your tree removal costs.

How much does it cost to cut a tree down?

When you’re ready to have a tree on your property come down, it’s time to call an arborist. The national average price range for tree-trimming costs is $270-$450. Tree removal costs can vary based on the height, diameter, location and health of the tree, and on whether you want to remove the stump. Height plays a major role in tree removal costs. Small trees, no more than 30 feet tall, are usually thinner in diameter and easier and safer for an arborist to manage. Removal of a small tree can cost anywhere from under $150 to over $450. Removal of medium-height trees, from 30 feet to 60 feet tall, could cost anywhere between $150 and $850 or more. Tall trees, typically 60 feet to 80 feet tall, may start at $500 or cost more than $1,000 to cut down. As the height and diameter increase, so does the cost.

Location is critical, too. Removing a tree in an open space is quicker and presents fewer obstacles than removing a tree that is growing flush to your house. Arborists can assess your tree and provide you with quotes based on the variables involved. For example, removing a medium-size hackberry tree that was growing too close to a home — the roots were damaging the home’s foundation — cost $1,500. This price included rope-down, house protection, tree quartering and stacking, and stump removal.

How much does it cost to remove a fallen tree?

If you need to have a tree cut down, have you planned what will happen next? Arborists often charge an additional fee to quarter and remove the fallen tree from your property, so anticipate this as part of your tree removal costs. You can elect to have the wood cut for use in your fireplace, or you may prefer to have it hauled away completely.

Tree removal costs may vary based on the height and the width of the felled tree. Size affects the labor required for removal, which will be reflected in the cost. For example, a tree service company may charge an additional $100-$120 to haul away the pieces of a felled tree. The service may cost as little as $75 in some regions and more than $150 in others. Regional labor rates, the cost of living and the cost to do business in your area will be reflected in your tree removal cost.

What is tree trimming vs. tree pruning?

The difference between tree trimming and tree pruning comes down to the intention and strategy in the two methods. Pruning often refers to the removal of branches deemed unnecessary or hazardous, and this process helps stimulate growth. Tree trimming focuses on removing overgrown branches. But this process can also help the tree receive more moisture and light. 

A professional might recommend pruning and trimming at different times of year to stimulate growth or leverage the tree’s dormant period to slow new sprouting.

If a neighbor's tree falls on my property, who is responsible for removal?

The rules for liability when a neighbor's tree falls on your property may depend on the unique details of the situation. A common outcome is that the homeowner pays for the damage and removal. Homeowners insurance may cover a tree that fell into your yard from a wind storm. Check your local laws and insurance policy to find out.

How do you remove roots after tree removal?

Getting rid of tree roots can be tricky. There are methods for getting roots out yourself, but the labor involved will take several hours and is quite intensive. For this reason, it’s best to hire a pro to remove stumps and roots. 

What do tree removal companies do with the wood?

Downed trees can have a number of different end destinations. The tree removal company may use it as firewood to sell to customers, or they may send it through a wood chipper to turn it into mulch. The tree may also wind up in a green landfill or biomass power plant. Alternatively, it could go to a lumber or chip mill. 

What are the advantages of cutting trees?

There are several advantages to responsible tree cutting. As trees age and stop producing seeds, cutting them down can prevent them from falling on valuable property like homes and cars. Additionally, cutting trees allows more sunlight to reach smaller trees below, giving them the opportunity to grow. And pruning your trees can help promote growth.

Who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches?

You should check your local laws to determine who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches on your property. If possible, make an agreement with your neighbor(s) on who is responsible to trim back tree branches that cross property lines.

Mr. Hernandez, first of all was very professional. Not only did he reply in a timely manner he was here the next morning after my request. Then he examines the tree that the City of Plano said was a violation according to city code. Trees must be a minimal 14' from the street to tree limbs. I have an official come out and they even saw that the tree was over the 14' margin of city code. Long story short Hernandez services did not only trim the tree to city code but trimmed even more off the tree over the street to make sure if ice accords I will be safe. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Hernandez for all your tree trimming or landscaping services. Amazing job gentlemen.

Luis came to do an estimate very quickly and arrived with a team prepared to do the job immediately since there were heavy storms due over the weekend. His team did a great job trimming back the trees while still making sure they looked like trees, and cleaned up my yard on their way out. With the exception of the trees being trimmed back, you would never know they were here. Great work, highly recommend.

Jared and his team were great to work with. Our backyard backs to a natural area and we had a number of large cedar elms to trim, as well as smaller trees. They did an excellent job, from start to finish. Not only did they haul off all the trimming, they left the whole back yard better than they found it! I highly recommend Dinardo Tree Care,

Hernandez tree service was the first to call and first to show up. We had 3 large trees, 1 large bush, 4 crepe myrtles, and 2 smaller bushes trimmed and opened up so that the sun could get to our grass area. We are very pleased with the work that the Hernandez Tree service. They came to please us, and we are pleased.

I hired Hernandez Tree Service to remove a large oak tree and trim two Holly trees. Lewis's five-man crew arrived on time, worked efficiently, and were careful to avoid any damage to my new fence. The tree stump and a couple of roots encroaching on my patio were removed, the Hollys were trimmed, and as a courtesy Lewis pruned the two crape myrtles in my front yard. No debris from the job was left behind. I especially appreciated that Lewis returned a couple of days later and voluntarily placed sod patches where the oak tree had killed the grass! The price was comparable to other estimates I had received but the service was far beyond what other companies offered. I will be using this company for any of my future landscaping needs.

I was very pleased with their service. They were prompt and efficient. They listened to my concerns and made sure I was happy with the results. It took me awhile to hire a tree trimming professional because I wanted my trees to still look like trees! So many companies round the trees out and I really dislike the look. These guys were meticulous in clean up and I’m very happy I hired them.
